Product Info

What is Cerenia?

Cerenia is indicated for the prevention of acute vomiting and prevention of vomiting due to motion sickness in dogs. It is intended for use in dogs 8 weeks of age or older. Cerenia requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs only (8 weeks of age or older)

Benefits:

  • Prevents acute vomiting and vomiting due to motion sickness in dogs
  • Comes in 4 different size tablets for various weight classes
  • Once a day dosing
  • Non-sedating

How does Cerenia work?

Cerenia is considered an antiemetic. It helps control acute vomiting and vomiting due to motion sickness in dogs. Vomiting occurs when a certain substance called substance P in the brain is triggered. Maropitant citrate, the ingredient in Cerenia, blocks substance P thus controlling the vomiting reaction.

Cautions:

Not for use in humans. Keep out of reach in children. Topical exposure may elicit localized allergic skin reactions in some individuals. In case of accidental ingestion, seek medical advice. Repeated or prolonged exposure may lead to skin sensitization. Wash hands with soap and water after administering drug. Cerenia is also an ocular irritant. In case of accidental eye exposure, flush with water for 15 minutes and seek medical attention.

Brand Name:

Cerenia (Pfizer)

Generic Name:

maropitant citrate

What is the most important information I should know about Cerenia?

Dogs should not be fed for at least 1 hour prior to giving Cerenia. For the prevention of acute vomiting Cerenia can be given once a day for up to 5 days. For prevention of vomiting due to motion sickness Cerenia can be given once a day, 2 hours before traveling, for up to 2 days in a row. Do not embed Cerenia in hot dogs, sausage, hard cheese or pill pockets to give the tablet as this may decrease efficacy by delaying absorption. If necessary, loosely wrap the tablet in a small amount of food such as deli meat.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Cerenia?

Do not use this medication in animals allergic to it. Tell your veterinarian if your pet has liver disease, gastrointestinal obstruction, or if your pet is pregnant or nursing.

How should Cerenia be given?

Give Cerenia exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand these directions, ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. For prevention of motion sickness, Cerenia should be given 2 hours before traveling, but you should not feed your pet for at least 1 hour before giving Cerenia. Blood tests or other medical evaluations may be required by your veterinarian to monitor your pet. Store Cerenia at controlled room temperature (68-77 F). Keep this medication out of the reach of children and other pets.

What are the possible side effects of Cerenia?

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Cerenia and seek emergency veterinary medical attention: an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; hives); sudden onset of diarrhea; vomiting; shock; seizures; coma. Other less serious side effects may occur. If any of the following side effects occur, continue to give Cerenia and talk to your veterinarian: drooling, lethargy, drowsiness. Side effects other than those listed in this guide may occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome to your pet.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Cerenia?

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and give the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication unless directed to by your veterinarian.

What happens if I overdose my pet on Cerenia?

Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room. Symptoms of Cerenia overdose may include diarrhea, bloody stool, loss of appetite, lethargy.

What should I avoid while giving Cerenia to my pet?
